This book represents the best, modern innovative thinking on the topic and symbolizes an important turning point in the history of wastewater reuse in irrigation as a major contributor to water and nutrient conservation, public health and welfare.' Professor Hillel Shuval, Hadassah Academic College and Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel 'This is a tremendously useful book with its clear focus on developing countries where wastewater treatment does not work. It is also a great resource for students.' Sasha Koo-Oshima, FAO This book is likely to be of interest to decision makers, consultants and researchers who are looking for practical tools to improve the selection of wastewater management strategies particularly in countries of the global south, and where water scarcity is critical. The lively and informative style makes it an accessible and easy read...definitely a worthwhile investment.' Barbara Evans, Waterlines 'The volume is successful in moving the state of knowledge beyond these basic perceptions and documenting methods for safe wastewater irrigation.' International Journal of Water Resources Development 'This book provides great insights into appropriate solution development for anyone interested in closed loop or cradle-to-cradle design and presents an approach for how to apply these concepts to a complex and culturally sensitive topic.'
